Growing up, Glover only read a couple of comics. He watched some of the animated series. His favorites were the ones where Spider-Man or the X-Men quit. He felt those stories were like It's a Wonderful Life in showing how important they are.

In May of 2010, a fan suggested that Glover should play Peter Parker in the then-upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man film. A fan campaign started with the hashtag "#Donald4SpiderMan". The campaign became so successful that even Stan Lee supported Glover for an audition. The role eventually went to English, and white, actor Andrew Garfield.

During this time, Brian Michael Bendis had conceived of an idea for an African-American Spider-Man for the Ultimate comic line. He claims that this was before the Glover campaign. However, he did base the look of the new Spider-Man, named Miles Morales, after Glover. On his show Community, Glover dressed like Spider-Man and Bendis said, "I saw him in the costume and thought, "I would like to read that book.'" Glover said he bought the first issue with Miles the day it came out.

When he did voice Miles on Ultimate Spider-Man, he said that it was a dream come true. He is actually older than Drake Bell, though Miles is supposed to be younger than Peter, a fact that Glover was conscious in his acting.

Other notable works include Black Peter Pan, Robot Chicken, The Muppets, 30 Rock, Sesame Street, and Community.
